You Bet Rvp Is On His Way…what Now For Southgate?

Robin van Persie has been the subject of reported bids from Manchesters United and City as well as Juventus and William Hill are betting on where the Dutch striker will be playing on the first day of next season. He is 11/10 to join moneybags Manchester City, 11/4 to be at Manchester United and 10/3 to still be at Arsenal. Juventus round off the top four at 4/1 with the rest of his potential suitors available at 16/1 or more.

Gareth Southgate has left his role as the FA’s Head of Elite Development and William Hill are now betting on where he will pop up next. He is 7/4 for his next managerial rolw to be in the Championship and 9/4 for it to be in League One.

“It was always a bizarre appointment for the FA to select Gareth Southgate and he may well have been a little out of his depth,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “He may well go back to management now and the Championship looks the most likely destination.”

Emile Heskey is reportedly in talks with Ipswich to sign as a free agent and the former England striker is 66/1 to be the Championship’s leading scorer in the 2012/13 season.

Robin van Persies’s club on the first day of 2012/13 season: 11/10 Manchester City; 11/4 Manchester United; 10/3 Arsenal; 4/1 Juventus; 16/1 AC Milan; 16/1 Barcelona; 20/1 Real Madrid; 25/1 Chelsea; 25/1 PSG

Gareth Southgate next managerial job: 7/4 Championship; 9/4 League one; 7/2 League two; 9/2 International team; 6/1 Premier League…others on request

During the week, Sir Alex Ferguson suggested that he would be interested in signing the want away striker and Manchester United are 3/1 to win the race to sign him.

“Arsenal are hoping that van Persie does a ‘Rooney’ and stays at Arsenal, but with so many suitors and just a year left on his contract, it looks likely, he will be on the move,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

You Bet Tevez U-turn…fab Number Of Starts

Corinthians have pulled out of a deal to sign Carlos Tevez at the last minute and William Hill now make him 2/1 to join ANY English club after he leaves Manchester City. He is 5/2 to join any South American side and 4/1 to join Real Madrid. Juventus are 6/1 and Inter Milan 7/1.

“In a real U-Turn, it now appears more likely that Tevez will stay in England than go anywhere else when he inevitably leaves City although in terms of specific clubs, it appears that Real Madrid lead the race for the want away striker,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Carlos Tevez Next Club: 2/1 English; 5/2 South American Club; 4/1 Real Madrid; 6/1 Juventus; 7/1 Inter Milan; 20/1 AC Milan; 20/1 Malaga; 25/1 MLS Club; 25/1 Barcelona


With Barcelona and Arsenal undertaking a tentative dialogue over the future of Cesc Fabregas, William Hill are offering odds on how many games he will start for the Catalan giants. He is 5/2 to start between 16 to 20 games, 9/2 to start under 11 games and 13/2 over 30.

“Despite the dearth of quality midfielders available to Barcelona, it looks as though the Spanish Champions may well be able to find a way to shoehorn him into their starting line-up,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Number of Fabregas starts for Barcelona in La Liga in the 2011-12 Season*:
9/2 Under 11
3/1 11-15
5/2 16-20
10/3 21-25
5/1 26-30
13/2 Over 30

*Bets void if Fabregas does not join Barcelona during this Summer’s Transfer Window

Wenger’s Fab Tip

Arsene Wenger has come out and said that he is optimistic his two courted players, Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas will be staying at the Emirates next season. William Hill agree with Mr. Wenger with regards to Nasri, offering 8/11 that he is still at the club come the first game of next season, although Fabregas is 4/9 to have left for pastures new by then. Barcelona are the 1/4 favourites to capture Fab’s signature when he does leave, while Manchester City are 8/11 favourites to bag Samir Nasri.

“Wenger has, rather defiantly, come out and claimed that his two most prized assets are staying put and while we agree that Nasri looks likely to be staying for at least another season, the lure of Barcelona may be too much for Fabregas and Arsenal to resist for another season,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Scott Parker has been backed from 20/1 to 6/1 to join Chelsea with Hills who make Villa 13/8 favourites to be his next club.”Parker returning to Chelsea would be a big story, but we are not convinced it is anything like a done deal.”
